48 Hours in Paris – Where to DineLike0

 

One more croissant please? Nope. That wasn’t the phrase I used the most, surprisingly during this 3rd trip to Paris. It was, ‘pass the bread please!’ and ‘I love cheese’. With endless bistros and brasseries, la France had a hold of me with the vino’s, the cheeses and surprisingly the Mediterranean food and the great company of new friendships. Here are the 4  places I wined and dined in 48 Hours in Paris.

Where to Dine in Paris

 

Le Grand Salon

Get ready to be amazed with a soaring of 46-foot high ceilings and hand-painted frescos dedicated to the Parisian Golden Age, Le Grand Salon is the hub for guests and Parisian people to mingle, connect, and savor the beautiful Belle Epoque surroundings. This sophisticated place offers a culinary escape regardless the time of the day.

Restaurant Lazare Paris

Right across Hilton Opera Paris is restaurant Lazare Paris. A bistro style with a twist. The restaurant has long bar with tables around it and our long rectangular wooden table with 22 of our friends  facing the open style kitchen. We ordered the Salade de haricots verts, artichauts à l’huile de noiset, Sélection de charcuterie fin,  Œufs de poule mimosa, au thon et au crab (my favorite!) Calamars sautés à l’ail et au piment d’Espelett with a main dish of Cabillaud cuit au plat, tomate, gingembre et basilic. Absolutely delicious and ended with Crumble de framboise.

Parvis de la Gare Saint-Lazare / Rue Intérieure, 75008 Paris, France

Nai Paris

La cuisine Libanaise. For the love of homos, kebbeh, labneh and grilled. Nai Paris is a family owned business that has been opened for 10 years and growing. I couldn’t believe I found it! Rumors has it that it is the best lebanese food in the country. Strangely enough, I was craving a little bit of home cooked food and was glad I found the last table for two right in the corner for lunch. Paul, who owns this hidden gem runs the restaurant with his wife and brother. It is the place to eat home cooked Lebanese food and has loyal fans and regular visitors from all over the world!

L’estaminet Au Marche Des Enfants Rouge

Right in the middle of the oldest covered market in Paris is L’estaminet Des Enfants Rouge. A lovely market setting and menu that changes every month with different daily dishes. A place to for cheese and wine during the day break, lovely brunch menus on Sundays and a great place to grab a bite with friends.

  • You loved her because you saw all her magic... she loved you because you reminded her of it when she’s forgotten it... 💫
  • We just had a long 3 day weekend in the UAE and I LOVED it! 
I’m thinking of starting a global petition where we can have 3 day weekend all over the world! 
What do you think? Wouldn’t you LOVE a 3 day weekend!?
  • Truth: I’ve come to terms a long time ago that, if you are not motivating me, praying for me, loving me, inspiring me or trying to build with me... then, you are a distraction. 
For a long time I’ve felt the pressure of social media and I’ve learnt to deal with it. 
We live in a society that is continuously looking for happiness, dreams and goals out there for the next best thing to feel ‘happiness’ and ‘social acceptance’ but, we seem to forget that we are ALIVE, and that is all we need right now. 
If you agree leave a ♥️. Thank you for being with me throughout all these years.
  • Right this second, where I am... and where I want to be and it’s f*** incredible ♥️

  • Are you a beach person or a mysterious desert lover?? I have to admit I love the beach but the desert has its own magic too! 😊
Back in the desert 🌵 and it’s hot but I can’t wait for the weather to start cooling off here! Which one do you love more?
  • What’s your favorite animal? Mine is the elephant. 
Those who know me well, know how I constantly talk about the dark side to elephant tourism that many people just don’t seem to be aware of… but you need to know this! 
Elephants are endangered species and should be in the wild, and the ONLY way to ride an elephant is by taming it with a process which is called Phajaan, or “the crush”.
It involves ripping baby elephants away from their mothers and confining them in a very small space, like a cage or hole in the ground where they’re unable to move with them tied down. Check it out on YouTube. 
So please don’t ride elephants, at any cost, ride bicycles instead. 
This photo was taken in an elephant sanctuary in North of Thailand in 2016
May the power of a thousand elephants give you the strength to face the troubles ahead. ♥️
  • I’m curious to know... Where is the best sunset you’ve ever seen? ♥️
  • People always say: “Make sure you get a job doing what you love!’’ But that isn’t the best advice. 
The right job is the job you love some days, can tolerate most days, and still pays the bills. Almost nobody has a job they love every single day and that is ok because that’s what it means to be human ♥️ #infinitilebanon #Q30
  • Believe me, with the crazy errands I’m running around for today, I wouldn’t mind dropping it all and being back here where my only concern would be tan lines 😊 Who is with me? 😊
Happy Friday!! ❤️
  • Leaving Lebanon is never easy. Thank you for those with insane magic in them, those who danced through the nights till the mornings with me, those who took road trips with me, those who loved me, those who ate ice cream with me every day, those who made efforts to see me, those who competed with me for the best tan lines and for those friends who always were undeniably themselves with me. You know who you are ♥️🇱🇧
  • When you follow a feeling to the very end, all your dreams will come true! Inside peek at Giraffe Manor in Kenya 🇰🇪
